Attractions to Visit During Your Stay In The Lake District

28 March 2016

The Lake District has a lot to offer; from stunning scenery, to interesting and fun attractions to visit. We’re very lucky here at Mill House Cottages to be based in such a diverse area which really does have something to suit everyone’s taste when it comes to finding something to do while visiting the area.

If you feel as though you are at a loss for something to do during your stay with us here in the Lakes, we have put together a short list of two of the most interesting attractions that you can visit which are but a stone’s throw away from our accommodation!

The Wordsworth Museum

If you are familiar with famous literature, then it is highly likely that you will already know of the work of William Wordsworth. His romantic poetry has inspired many generations and his work is still as poignant today.

Take a step into Dove Cottage, Wordsworth’s family home and now the site of the Wordsworth Museum, and find out more about this talented local man who captured the hearts of the nation. This endearing peek into the life of such an interesting , talented individual is sure to impress, and you may find out a thing or two about the great man himself that you have never heard before!

Look through his hand written notes and stroll through the beautiful gardens that inspired him to write such beautiful poetry! There are even events that are held regularly which are centred around the inspirational life that Wordsworth led, so be sure to sign up  - they get booked up quite quickly, as you can imagine!


If finding out about the arts and culture of the Lake District is something that you are interested in on a broader scale, Rheghed is the destination for you.

Combining the arts and culture scene with a love of food and retail, Rheghed provides the platform for a truly unique day out. Take a look at the incredible gallery on the top floor of the attraction if you are a purveyor of beautiful art, or have a wander around the unique, quirky shops if finding the perfect unique gift is more your thing.

There’s also a food hall for food lovers to experience some of the delicious local favourites! There’s always something going on at Rheghed, so be sure to check what’s on before you visit!

Aside from the stunning views that we are blessed with here in the Lake District, we think that more people should learn about what really makes the Lakes a wonderful place to visit. There’s so much to see and do, you’ll never be short of an entertaining day, we guarantee it!
